“It is hope-giving to consider the young, and it is also hope-giving to consider growth as a constant. Here I am at fifty-eight and in this past year I have only begun to understand what loving is … forced to my knees again and again like a gardener planting bulbs or weeding, so that I may once more bring a relationship to flower, keep it truly alive.”

It was a cold November when Terry and I planted bulbs for the late winter and early spring.  I am careful to lay out the packages with the bulbs as I direct the symphony of the planting by the time of emergence breaking the soil and blooming to perfection.  The tall ones in the back the short ones in the front and then of course the dates they will bloom syncing it all together.  READ MORE HERE.

“You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue - you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.”
— PSALM 139:1-6
